romney's speech. you had michelle obama do the same sort of talking about the democrats, talking about obama as someone who had a childhood that i think a lot of people could relate to. her own childhood as well growing up on the south side of chicago. so i think people looked at that convention and saw themselves in a way they didn't look at the rnc, and there weren't a lot of handles into that convention in the way i think the dnc was able to put on a real tab leau of different stories. it resonated with people. >> i think bnt is able to defend the terrible situation obama had when he walked in the door. it didn't seem like whining when he said it. president obama uses bnt in a new campaign add. let's look at this and see how this is going to register. >> he keeps saying it. >> this prz cannot tell you he's better off today than when he took office. >> here is where we were in 2008. >> worst financial collapse since the great depression. >> american workers were laid off in numbers not seen in three decades. >> here's where we are today, 30 months of private sector job growth creatin
